The Next Big Thing in OTR?
(NEW Article 1-28-2009)

My MP3s at Mediafire:
With the exception of the W. Lee O'Daniel show, which came from open reel-to-reel,
all of the following mp3s were dubbed directly from transcription disks.

Bob Wills Round-Up
An in-progress web album

AFRS Melody Round-Up folder
Twenty-two shows in various conditions. Some are in excellent shape, but a few do have some pops and clicks and are quite noisy. On the whole, they're all very listenable especially if you enjoy old-timey western and country music.

Transcription Disc Oddities
Featured are live local 1940's Christmas broadcasts as well as a couple of syndicated shows. Most of the transcription disks in this folder had no label, only identified by some small amount of info written or scratched onto the disk itself. Good or bad, they were all like little surprise packages to listen to for the first time in half a century or longer. (11 shows)

From June 25, 2005, National Lum & Abner Society Convention
in Mena, Arkansas. Hear Tim Hollis and Uncle Donnie in (((stereo))).
Dig that crazy beat y'all. :-)

W. LEE O'Daniel - Sunday, June 1941
The Governor of Texas speaks in this half-hour broadcast. His son Pat and the Hillbilly Boys render a few songs.

Eddie Condon's Jazz concert, AFRS #5, October 19, 1944
Great music. Wild Man Gene Krupa goes ballistic on drums.

Some of My Picks for Old-Time Radio & Records pages with RealAudio and/or MP3 sound files

(If you like what you hear, please let them know and tell 'em who sent you. I try to keep my links current but if you know of other links that I don't have (and should) or if one of these links disappears and I forget to remove it, let me know at


Discussions in another forum pointed me to this link. No sound files here, but you'll find articles by Elizabeth McLeod including 64, get that, SIXTY-FOUR early Amos and Andy scripts. Elizabeth is quite a writer recognized for well-documented, balanced evaluations on topics pertaining to old-time radio. I'm sure you'll enjoy her commentary on the field and you'll probably learn something too.
